Mark's American Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Mark's American Cuisine is one of the most romantic restaurants in the city. It's housed in a former 1920s church with soaring ceilings, and the building went through several incarnations before Mark and Lisa Cox opened their restaurant in 1997. Restored to its original beauty, the space boasts the Cloisters main dining room, private rooms and the semi-private Loft --- the original choir area that overlooks the main floor. Amidst the candlelit tables and hand-painted Deco walls, you'll find socialites and power players at both lunch and dinner enjoying seasonally inspired dishes. Starters might be a duo of foie gras torchon or hearth-roasted oysters, while entrées could include ash-crusted beef tenderloin, sesame tuna or duck confit bathed in berries. End the meal with a fruit tart or house-made chocolates. An eight-course tasting menu is also featured at dinner, while weekday lunch offers a three-course prix-fixe menu. Wine director Marcus Gausepohl oversees the extensive, and expensive, wine list.
